On the road again traveling from Pasadena, Ca to East Lansing, MI to 
make what I call the annual home maintainance and PC upgrade service 
call to my mother and sister.  .   Passing through Iowa, my mobile 
UIview laptop lit up with this:

This is the western half of the state. The metro area at the left of the 
screen is the Omaha, NE area and the metro area at the right is Des 
Moines, IA.  I screen capped this just moments ago, and uploaded it to 
my webserver via the FREE WiFi hot spots provided at Iowa Interstate 
rest stops.   (I am also posting this message from the same hotspot.)  

[The coolness of this ALMOST offsets the idiocy I monitored on 30M HF 
APRS last night in eastern Colorado on I-76.  A (so far) nameless W9 was 
beaconing every minute on an ECHO digi path. Propagation was quite good 
on 30M last night -- I was hearing the original beacon and 2-3 digied 
versions every time.   And this was a HOME STATION !!!!! ]
